Joshua D. replied to Strass Strass's discussion 'Some serious do-do.'
"You know I did try a little and it did prove difficult. Although it doesn't change your mind it doesn't discount my personal experiences. I really don't know what the point would be considering we both admit that the world is full of…"

"I would put my child's hand in a fire but poverty and struggle can make a much better person. The bible says that suffering produces patience, patience produces character, and character produces hope. It's like the anti yoda. I have…"

Joshua D. replied to Strass Strass's discussion 'Some serious do-do.'
"The extraordinary claim is that you do not suffer from cognitive dissonance and are not seeking consonance. How do you know that? If my worldview is correct then that is exactly the case. By stating that you are in the default state of consonance…"

Joshua D. replied to Strass Strass's discussion 'Some serious do-do.'
"You just made an extraordinary claim. Do you have ANY evidence that it's the default state? Maybe you coming to that conclusion is how you achieved consonance. Genesis is not a science book neither is the the bible as a whole. The science of…"

"Really? None? I comment some online but mostly read. I have no proof of vitriolic atheists short of personal experience. I delete nasty emails. One of my best friends is an atheist and we get along swimmingly but some of his friends can be awful…"

"I highly doubt you've researched any of this over the last forty years if those are your questions. Rhetoric and nothing more. Why answer your questions when you ignored mine?"

Joshua D. replied to Strass Strass's discussion 'Some serious do-do.'
"People hate being told they are wrong. I recently debunked a "ghost" video a friend placed on Facebook and was inundated with hateful messages. There will always be those who respond violently to being challenged. A marketplace of ideas…"

Joshua D. replied to Strass Strass's discussion 'Some serious do-do.'
"Often times what people call Gods word is what they have been told to believe. I often encounter the same problem with Christians. I have been told in the past " I don't care what the bible says I believe what I believe." Which to me…"

"They are embarrassing just like the vitriolic atheists who adhere to similar strategies."

"I'm a believer and you would place me into that third category probably. I do not discount doubt and try and limit the effects of confirmation bias. I get what you are attempting to explain with cognitive dissonance but how do you know you…"

Joshua D. replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'How to argue against a particular delusion.'
"you are missing the point. How can you trust your mind to perform those functions and come to that conclusion? You have to believe in yourself and that the natural world is intelligible. Certainly not the foundation of your structure but everything…"

Joshua D. replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'How to argue against a particular delusion.'
"those are definitionally beliefs though. You try and set them apart by saying one is faith and the other is predictions but definitionally they would be the same thing right? I use him a lot but trofim lysenko had predictions regarding his rejection…"

Joshua D. replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'How to argue against a particular delusion.'
"You dont deal in absolutes so you understand what I mean by a measure of belief right? You do not call it belief but thats what it is. it comes from a fundamentally wrong definition of belief. Very little belief is blind but is informed off of…"

Joshua D. replied to Natasha Gladwell's discussion 'How to argue against a particular delusion.'
"Your world view supposes that god only exists in the supernatural so my point still stands. If God, or gods, created the universe and established the laws of nature then looking at nature would reveal something about the God/s that created…"
